Re: Visopsys 0.91 - Return of the RAMdisk?

Compressing some things in the filesystem could also work, but ... yuck. Yes, a compression - i.e. of filesystem's part not used while booting a kernel - could work: seeing that a LZMA-compressed Visopsys takes just 451KB, there's a really a room. But I understand the live decompression could be ti...

Re: Visopsys 0.91 - Return of the RAMdisk?

Hi there Andy, I re-read older stuff in our coreboot threads and saw that I was going to put your ramdisk boot feature into the 0.85 release, which it looks like I did. Have you tried that one? Yes, I think I tried your more recent floppy versions, but for some reason only your special 2019-08-09 0....

Re: Visopsys 0.91 - Return of the RAMdisk?

I got a minute just now and tried the /ramdisk. It seems like the RAM disk loading fails for me in the bootloader? The progress bar stops. Is that what you saw? No, when a RAMdisk feature doesn't work - I see the error log identical on top of https://visopsys.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=1536#p1536 t...

Re: Visopsys 0.91 - Return of the RAMdisk?

I'll need to look back at some of the guidance you gave me previously. Thank you. I just re-tested these instructions at https://visopsys.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=1536#p1536 : almost everything works fine, except that ./cbfstool.sh for wgetting a minimal set of sources & building your own cbfstoo...

Visopsys 0.91 - Return of the RAMdisk?

Good day, Andy! How are you doing? Hope you are in a great health and everything is going well in your life. Recently we've discovered that Lenovo G505S has bad IRQ routing in a coreboot BIOS, and found the way to fix it! Now I've re-tested your special 2019-08-09 0.84 floppy with a RAMdisk support ...

Re: Visopsys 0.84+ (2019-08-09) cannot detect a harddrive

Fingers crossed, although my suspicions about your problem have returned to the IDE and/or SATA drivers. Good day Andy, sorry it took me so long to test your image and I'm late for your 0.85 release - have been checking this thread once in a while but worked too much at these new year holidays and ...

Yes, I am ready to test the new images. Wish you a Happy New Year ! :)

Re: Visopsys 0.84+ (2019-08-09) cannot detect a harddrive

Sorry, I forgot to make the RAM disk image for you. But, this indicates that the APIC is needed in order to use this controller. The last thing to try, I guess, is to give you some kind of debug version that outputs about what's going on with the APIC. That's tricky though, with a floppy image. The...

link Sadly it can't boot to Visopsys as a virtual floppy ( have you also applied your workaround from https://visopsys.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=338#p1594 ? ). A bit later I'm going to try USB. Just in case, here's a new log - with a "Controller has no interrupt" message Detecting hardware: SA...

Small bump ;) How could I get more debug info for you?
